Paphiopedilum venustum album
I don't have many Paphiopedilums, but they are all in bloom or coming into bloom including this first bloom seedling of Paphiopedilum venustum var. album. I've included a picture of the normal variety for comparison, and it is obvious that this variety has not of the purple and red coloration of the other variety. It is a small plant with beautifully mottled foliage, though the foliage has none of the purple coloration either, and it is from Bangladesh, India and Nepal.
